I have the same letter and it all must be scam letters coming from all the same organization . R. W. Rich and Associates is also connected to Central Price Distributors and Global Reporting Network and Award Processing Center and the rest of the scammers too many to list. This I believe is a organized crime organization located all over the world. They have more than one office stationed at difference addresses, within different states. They have a list of people like us which they bought from some addressing company of consumers who wish to take a chance for a small fee. They sucker you in and the take you on a high ride and drop you like a b51 bomb. They sucker punch you with attention by calling your house and lieing to you about some fabulous prize you won, or think you will win. They are on you to get every possible dine out of you that they can. This organization is bigger than you and I and the FBI, CIA, or anyone put together. It is a organization out to take your money and not to give you a break. This is the way they make money! So next time when you heard the bells, and think your ship has come in! Well, think again, and run away! They call you up talking crap and they will give you the run around and tell you crazys lies to get in your pocket! DO NOT FALL for their scams. Because y0u have the ability to stop them in their tracks. Just hang up the phone in their scammy faces and call the BBB or your local telephone company and have their number blocked. This I call the suckers organization AND THEY HAVE money know how and ability to make senior citizens take money away from their banks to give away to them. Please do not let them take your senior citizen (s) for a ride to broke town USA. Please know that what I believe is true and no one is doing a thing about this. If everyone would complain to the BBB and FBI and CIA, they would have to start a task force to get rid of this organization. Many people are too quiet on these people. They are all across america passing out our names, addresses, and telephone numbers. It could be more than just that information on some folks. So think about this before you give away your hard earned funds. You are not winning anything unless you toss that paper in the trash can and hang that telephone up in their faces.

I received a letter today from R.W. Rich&Associates telling me that i have won a cash prize too.They ask me to send $9.99 and a extra $3.00 for rush delivery.I think these people are cold hearted people to want and run a scam like this on someone.I receive these letters all the time and its just crazy and no one won't do nothing about it.These people need to be shut down before they ruin someone's life, and plus i think it should be aganist the law for consumer agencies just to handle out your personal information for a couple of dollars to company without performing a background check on them.Someone really needs to do something about this, SERIOUSLY!!!

Why are there all thse claims of lottory or sweepstakes winnings going on anyway. Is their any controll on fraud claims being sent in the mail? I recieve alot of these types of winning forms to be returned imideatly to deliver my prize. Do we have an agency that confirms ligitimate financial gains by mail? It is hard to believe that all these forms mailed out{costing a fortune in cash}are all fraud. How can we have faith in mails honesty if we have criminals out in our world writing up fraud papers and sending them to our public? How can we go abouts weeding out the liers of sweepstakes so the public can have a litte faith in ligitimate contests for tax rightoffs. A way to contribute to the weak in public getting an oppertunity to have a hand up financally.

Hi my names brittney thank god for all of you my mom recieved the same letters from this fraud company but just like th rest of us she fell right into their promising lies as well. This really breaks my heart every day my mom would wake up and rush to the mail box and wait day after day for these letters she thought were about to answer our prayers!! Weeks and weeks gone by and she wouldn't show me the letters she would just tell me to pray that we're finally in our lives going to live for us! And tonight she came home and showed me her letter saying that she was a gurenteed winner and if sent in 10.99 more they would process her funds from the regency prize patrol until I do some research and realized they were a scam artist and to believe they do inicent people this way it's so sad they get away with acts like this everyday!! My mom has invested over 400 dollar into this company and I must say you can prevent this spread the word about these people and how they receive our address should be illegal!!! Thank you all for posting your story's you helped us before we lost it all thank you hope our story has been helpful to prevent future scams from these scam artist

Hi there,
First, I'd like to say I completely agree these people should be locked away for tricking innocent, hard working people into what they think is a "winning" letter.
How they get away with it is...
If you read carefully, they said "Won a cash prize UP to $____ amount" This is where they get you. If you read the fine print on the back, it does say that the fee of $9.99 is for coupons and savings. They also say "No purchase necessary to enter." So this is why it isn't illegal. In the US it's illegal to charge a fee for a sweepstakes. BUT if they charge a fee for a "special incentive" then they can still make mony because they will send you some junk coupons or such in the mail. This allows them to charge a fee because, "technically" (and I say that loosely because it's a bunch of B.S.) they aren't charging for the sweepstakes but for the "special gift."
Now, as much as this is total crap and not fair to most, if you receive anything in the mail like this.. ALWAYS read the fine print. I was excited as most of you when I got a few of these but, after reading the fine print carefully (and a few times) I realized that they are within the US's legal guidelines. As much as I want these people to sit in a cold lonely jail cell for completely ripping people off, they are allowed to do this because of their long, very small printed, disclaimers on the back. How they get you is with the very large print on the front. They word it in such a way that you believe you've already won, just have to send that fee. When in fact, you have just received an entry form and the fee is to get junk mail coupons or something to that effect. I hope this helps anyone else as confused as I was. I looked up the laws and, as crappy of a scam this is, they technically aren't breaking laws. Everyone just make sure to not fall for it, unless you want the stupid coupons and for your banking info to pretty much be public, because they aren't illegally charging you.. You will get some really dumb junk mail for $9.99 plus the $3 "rush" fee.. Which by the way isnt rushed at all. The fine print on the back says it will still take like 4-6 weeks! Oh United States.. How can we let scams like this be legal?! Good luck!
